Default The student surpasses the master...

The wife and I made it to the range for a little while today. As i have stated before, the wife is a newbie to shooting. What previous (before we met) encounters she has had with firearms were decidedly BAD. I have slowly been working with her (read: letting her go at her own speed, when shes ready, she says something, i dont push, nor do i criticize) first pistols and the .22 rifle. She, of late has been really showing more and more confidence in her abilities.

Last time out she actually asked to step up w/ the new (to me) Ruger 44 carbine. She fired 3 rounds and decided it was enough. Well, today she was ready to take on the challenge full bore. A LOT of guys would have trouble showing this as it would hurt their pride. ( i am sure i will never hear the end of it from my buddys) but i take pride in showing this as the student is surpassing the master. Kinda like one of my kids taking a nicer deer than i during a season.

I'll let the video do the talking...
(Daddys PROUD please ignore my directional dyslexia)


and another....

My results...5 rounds, slow fire...


10 rounds, rapid fire...


Another thing i took away from todays time is i am finding just how flat this .44 shoots...she hits the same elevation at 50 as she does at 100! i likey!!

Just go ahead and give the carbine to your wife now. You'll save a bunch of embarrassment later.

Excellent stuff...she's really doing well.

I'd be happy as a clam with those results.
Cool rifle.

See, that's "man thinking". Way to go and a thumbs up.

I had one of those .44 carbines years ago and I'm still kicking myself for letting it go.
